Versus Nissan Rogue

Learn What Sets the Jeep Cherokee Apart from its Compact SUV Competitors

As one of the go-to compact SUVs in our new inventory at Danbury Chrysler Dodge Jeep, the Jeep Cherokee strives to thread the gap between the brand's off-road prowess and the greater potential for comfort across its competitive market segment. While other models, such as the Nissan Rogue, are eager to offer something for every driver, the end result tends to be a performance that leaves a lot to be desired. The Cherokee is an example of a model that focuses on its strengths throughout, resulting in a vehicle that is more its own than its peers can claim.

Jeep Cherokee vs Nissan Rogue

  • With only one powertrain under the hood of the Nissan Rogue, drivers don't have to dig too deep to see the contrasts in performance when compared to the Jeep Cherokee. The Rogue's 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine can only produce 170-horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, which is easily bested by the 184-horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque from the Cherokee's 2.4-liter four-cylinder starting engine.
  • If you're still left with the burning desire for addition power, the available 3.2-liter V6 of the Cherokee will handle your needs with its 271-horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque performance. While the Rogue offers an available hybrid powertrain, it's simply unable to keep up with the ride quality available inside a Jeep Cherokee.
  • With our latest Cherokee models, drivers are offered the choice between front- and 4-wheel drive for nearly every available trim level. While the Rogue is able to provide its passengers with a front- or all-wheel drive experience, you won't be able to find the same level of satisfaction from the Rogue's automatic full-time all-wheel drivetrain as the Cherokee's 4-wheel drive focus. By emphasizing the power that is divided between each tire, the Cherokee can stand out with better traction and overall performance.
  • The Cherokee isn't just a model that can excite our customers with its more potent performance, but what can actually be achieved with it. If you're a driver who is on the hunt for the right amount of towing capacity, you can expect our Cherokee vehicles to better suit your needs than the output from the Nissan Rogue. With a standard towing capacity of 2,000 pounds and a peak of 4,000 pounds, the Cherokee has no problem standing out from the 1,000 pound maximum towing capacity of the Rogue.

With a wide range of reasons to take into consideration when browsing for your next compact SUV, the Jeep Cherokee promises to be focused on the needs of drivers throughout the local area. If your sights are set on a model with a smooth-riding all-wheel drive system and superb levels of driver confidence, then there are few choices with the appeal of our latest Cherokee vehicles.

Versus Ford Escape

Learn What Sets the Jeep Cherokee Apart from its Compact SUV Competitors

When it comes to finding the right blend of comforts and diverse performance expectations, the Jeep Cherokee proves to be a surprising success for drivers in the greater Danbury area. With a highly-capable all-wheel drive system and a slew of quality standard or available features, the latest iteration of the Cherokee has been eager to stand out from its competitors throughout the compact SUV market segment. Among them is the Ford Escape, whose lesser offering of value allows our Cherokee models at Danbury Chrysler Jeep Dodge to be excellent choices for interested customers in Norwalk, New Milford and Brewster, NY!

Jeep Cherokee vs Ford Escape

  • In terms of performance, the Jeep Cherokee is able to remain a step ahead of what's offered under the hood by the Ford Escape. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder base engine can produce 184-horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque, which is a better ride than both the 168-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder base engine and 179-horsepower, 1.5-liter turbocharged option of the Escape.
  • For those who prefer a greater display of power and traction, there's the 3.2-liter V6 of the Cherokee and 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder from the Escape. While the latter produces a commendable 245-horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, our staff has been able to enjoy the greater yield for success from the 271-horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque performance from the Cherokee's V6.
  • The wide range of performance capabilities not only translates to a more rewarding performance, but our drivers can also expect a more potent maximum trailer weight from the Cherokee. Its base engine boasts up to 2,000 pounds of total weight capacity, compared to the 1,500 pounds of the Escape's starting powertrain. Those who choose the V6 engine for their Cherokee will find the trailer capacity of 4,500 to be noticeably better than the 3,500 pound limit from the Escape.
  • While the Ford Escape can stand out with a greater amount of cargo space for drivers, the Jeep Cherokee chooses to focus on the comforts of its passengers instead. The additional seven cubic feet of passenger volume helps to balance out the more rugged performance of the Cherokee by maximizing its interior quality.
  • Thanks to the newly available ventilated Nappa leather seats and heated steering wheel within the Trailhawk trim level, the Jeep Cherokee can confidently be customized in a number of refreshing ways. While the Titanium trim of the Escape provides its passengers with a fair amount of included features, its price is too similar to that of the Cherokee without a similar level of value available.

With a wide range of reasons to take into consideration when browsing for your next compact SUV, the Jeep Cherokee promises to be focused on the needs of drivers throughout the local area. If your sights are set on a model with a smooth-riding all-wheel drive system and superb levels of driver confidence, then there are few choices with the appeal of our latest Cherokee vehicles.

Versus Kia Sportage

The Jeep Cherokee Compares To The Kia Sportage

When you're looking for a vehicle that is big enough to comfortably hold five passengers, and all of their stuff, you may want to look into purchasing a SUV. The Jeep Cherokee is the perfect example of what an SUV should be. Its large interior combines with its off-roading capabilities to allow for excellent transportation through any terrain or whatever weather that may come your way. The Jeep Cherokee also offers luxurious interior amenities, modern infotainment and safety technology, and outstanding performance options.

That being said, the Jeep Cherokee does have some tough competition. So how does it compare to the Kia Sportage? Read below to find out.

  • Performance

    When you are looking to go on the unbeaten path, you will need the power to get you there. Both the Jeep Cherokee and Kia Sportage have plenty of power, but the Jeep Cherokee contains more in every comparable trim level. The base models of both SUVs have a 2.4-liter I4 engine, but the Jeep Cherokee receives more horsepower. The top trim level of the Kia Sportage is a 2.0-liter I4 engine, which produces 237-horsepower, and the top trim level of the Jeep Cherokee is a 3.2-liter V6 engine that has 271-horsepower. If you want more get-up-and-go oomph, in either the base or top trim, the Jeep Cherokee is the way to go.

  • Technology and Safety

    When it comes to safety technology, both the Kia Sportage and the Jeep Cherokee are comparable. They both have Hill Assist Control, Electronic Stability Control, a Rear Camera Display, and many other helpful safety technological programs. When it comes to the infotainment technology, though, nothing can beat the Uconnect 8.4 NAV system in the Jeep Cherokee. The Kia Sportage does have available a UVO eServices eight-inch color touch-screen display, which features navigation, SiriusXM Traffic, and HD radio, but the Jeep Cherokee does it better. The Jeep Cherokee has an 8.4-inch color touchscreen display that offers all of the above plus: 3-D navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and is even able to connect to your iPod.

  • Available Special Options and Trim Levels

    The Kia Sportage is only available in three trim levels: the LX, EX, and SX Turbo. This doesn't provide you, or your wallet, with many options. The Jeep Cherokee is available in seven trim levels: the Sport, Sport Altitude Limited Edition, Latitude, Limited, High Altitude Limited Edition, Trailhawk, and Overland. Each one of these trim levels comes with different included features, an adjusted over-all design, and multiple available options to choose from.
